The Florida Keys are famous for their breathtaking sunsets. On any given day, the beaches are filled with people watching for the “green flash” – the moment when the sun disappears completely below the horizon.

French Polynesia…remembering my trip

Overwater Bugalows - Moorea, French PolynesiaIf you have one place that you must go in your lifetime, make it French Polynesia. When I landed there, I felt like I had left this planet. It is unworldly. I felt no connection whatsoever back to the rest of the world. It was peaceful and serene, the people had a gentle, childlike quality and everywhere I went, it smelled like flowers. The water was impossibly clear and blue and loaded with rainbow colored fish and coral.

I regret that at the time, I did not take more photos, but I have a few good shots to play with so will post them in the days ahead
